Welcome to the Bell Inn, Bovingdon

Beautiful surroundings and beer gardenThe Bell Bovingdon is a lovely 18th Century Grade II listed family run pub situated not far from Hemel Hempstead in Hertfordshire. Here you’ll find traditional log burning fires and cosy low ceilings.

Relax in front of the fire, perch at the bar or tuck yourself away in a cosy corner and enjoy the superb food, drink and atmosphere in our traditional Hertfordshire Pub located in the village of Bovingdon.

Explore our food menu built around the best local produce and suppliers. We offer food freshly prepared in our kitchen with well-kept real ales and a fantastic wine menu.

Outside is a pretty garden terrace, perfect for soaking up the sun in the summer or after strolling one of the many walks close to the pub. We are also Dog-Friendly, so feel free to bring your well-behaved pet with you.

From Business meetings to walking parties or celebration parties, we are happy to tailor a food and drink menu to suit any occasion.

Andy, Natilee and the team look forward to welcoming you to The Bell.
